Monte Carlo:

Toyota president John Howett is confident that the team is in a strong position going into the Monte Carlo race this weekend. "Yes, Monaco will definitely I think be a positive race. It's challenging for the drivers with the qualifying system and it's always a risk for crash and damage. But I think in terms of competitiveness we're now in a strong position, probably third or fourth-best team," said Howett. Toyota's Formula One season has already thrown up a few challenges. Technical director Mike Gascoyne has departed, and drivers Ralf Schumacher and Jarno Trulli have amassed just seven points between them heading into Sunday's Monaco Grand Prix. But with a new car built in record time in Cologne, there's a belief things could be about to pick up. Production of the TF106B comes after construction was centralised and Howett is confident the move will pay off. (SNTV)
